Thomas Blackshear's Innocent Wonders - "All of these pieces depict innocent moments of joy or just living - exciting times from a child's pint of view....I would hope that people would be able to look at a piece of mine and it would evoke an emotion that would make them feel good or think about a time that they haven't seen in a while that brings back pleasant memories. That's what I hope people get from these pieces - the simple pleasure of enjoying something for the pure innocent beauty of it." - Thomas Blackshear
